Donald Trump hosted Sarah Palin, Kid Rock, and Ted Nugent at the White House for dinner last night. At one point in the evening, the trio posed with a portrait of Hillary Clinton.
Keith Olbermann, the former MSNBC host who now works as a special correspondent for GQ, took them down with this brilliant tweet:
Honest to God, had the painting fallen off the wall and hit this Trailer Park Trash trio, the national IQ would've gone up 25 points pic.twitter.com/XIMuEzXpNm

The trio can be seen mocking Clinton, the former First Lady and 2016 Democratic nominee for President, at the foot of her portrait. Perhaps they were unable to find their own portraits in the White House.
Sarah Palin had a failed White House bid in 2008 as John McCain’s Vice Presidential pick. The pair suffered a decisive defeat to Barack Obama and Joe Biden. Palin’s political career was largely finished afterwards.
Kudos to Olbermann for his brutal takedown of this bigoted and foolish trio whose presence in the White House only soils its storied history.
